North Brothers Yankee no. 2150 24in Auger Bit Extension.
This is a near-mint example of the largest auger bit extension North Brothers made. It has all original finish and a perfect tang. I doubt it was ever equipped in a chuck even once. The business end still has most of the original decal. The original box is included but it's a mess.. it's in three pieces although most of the original label is attached. Regardless of the condition of the box, it's the best example of this tool I've seen. You probably won't use it often but it's invaluable when you have a situation where you need just a bit more reach.

Reid Patent "Lightening Brace" .
This is a perfectly functional example with a checked handle. Aside from that check it's perfectly clean and possibly the best example I've found. The nickel plating is 100%. The pad has some of the craziest rosewood I've seen on one of these- a mix of great color along with a vibrant sap/heartwood contrast. It comes with its original screwdriver bit and works very well. It's a beautiful, interesting tool

1/8in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This plane has an over-stamped maker's mark I can't quite make out. I'm sure it's British and very well made. It's seen some use and is not perfect. It has some minor pitting on the back of the blade as shown in the photos. The boxing is a bit uneven but close enough to use, though not a collector's item. The plane is otherwise very clean. It's a solid user that will take a little tuning to get working but it's a rare and desirable small size so it's worth the effort.

this plane is an unusual design. Its arms are wedge-shaped in cross section. They are held in place via vertical wedges that are set from the top of the plane. The depth stop appears to be cast iron.

Mint North Brothers no. 130A Yankee Screwdriver.
This is the largest model North Brothers made. I believe this is a wartime example beause it lacks nickel plating but is instead blued. It is complete with all three bits in its original box. The tool itself is dead mint and works perfectly. The box has some wear and tear but a nice label with good corners. An exceptional example of this very useful tool. This is the version with the quick return spring so use caution opening it.

Interesting Shipwrights Serving Mallet.
I want to thank the couple of people who wrote to inform me that this is not a caulking mallet, as I originally thought, but is actually a shipwright's serving mallet. It's not used for striking at all, rather, it's used for "worming, parceling and serving" rope on a ship. It is a well-made mallet made of what I believe is Lignum. It's about 4lbs overall. The head has a groove at the top you can see in the photos.

Big Matched Pair of H. Chapin 1 1/2in Hollow and Round Molding Planes.
These planes are a no. 24 pair, which equates a sole 1 1/2in wide. At this width the sole does not cut a complete 60 degree arc of a circle so the radius of the curve is a bit over 1 1/2in. Both planes have some light damage at the toe- the hollow is a little worse as you can see in the photos. The heels and plane bodies are exceptionally clean. The round blade is flawless, the hollow has a little bit of pitting you can see in the photos. They are usable planes requiring not too much work to have working again.

Unusual Applewood Stair Saw.
This is a gorgeous saw made from a piece of deep red applewood with some nice figure to it. The blade is in good shape and decently sharp. It's interesting in that it's not adjustable.

The blade could likely be modified fairly easily to make slots for adjustment.

Stearns Jointer Gauge Mint IOB.
This jointer gauge was made by E.C. Stearns in Syracuse, NY. The gauge clamps to the side of a metallic bench plane and allows for the user to plane accurate angles. It's not terribly efficient when planing to 90 degrees, but if you are making a coopered joint or anything off-square it's pretty useful. The box has a good label and reinforced corners, but one tear.

Craftsman Hand Drill.
This drill is essentially the same as a Miller Falls no. 5 in terms of size and capacity. I doubt it was made by Millers Falls since the design is very different. The hollow handle is aluminum. It has a smooth gear action and the chuck works perfectly. It's in very good condition, mechanically excellent, but missing some paint.

It has one small patch of pitting on the back that you can see in the photos. The bevel is in good shape- no nicks or chips, but not sharp. The handles are perfect.

Early Stanley no. 13 Circular Plane.
This is an early "type 3" example made 1879-1884. It has Sargent's June 17, 1879 patent date on the side. The blade is original, as is the lever cap. There is no damage, just litke wear from use. The sole still adjusts easily both inside and out. The blade is in good shape as well with no rust or pitting. It has the first style lateral adjuster on it which narrows the date of manufacture down closer to 1885. It's a nice early, usable example of this useful circular plane.

Sandusky 1/4in Center Bead Molding Plane.
This plane is in excellent conditon. Unlike most small center beads I find this one is dead straight. Most I find are warped beyond use. It has a clean blade completely free of pitting. The plane itself has seen little, if any use. It'll make a nice worker, useful for cutting beads and reeding away from the edge of a board with the use of a batten.

Wartime Stanley no. 4 Smooth Plane.
This plane was made during WWII and shows some of the results of supply shortages. It has hardwood handles rather than rosewood. The adjusting wheel is made of Bakelite, not brass. There is still some brass trim on the ends of the handle hardware. The frog also has its adjuster so it's not a full-on wartime plane. It's a bit dark in places, but the japanning is near-perfect. There are no cracks or chips in the knob or tote. The blade is quite decent- long and free of pitting. It's a solid user smooth plane made during an interesting time in the company's history
